Tales from the Pgh Cat Ladies – TNRing the Gingers

Over the past two weeks, we’ve successfully trapped two different ginger male cats – Ginger Snap and Captain Kirk (because of his long flowing locks.) Ginger Snap practically walked into the trap, struggled a teeny bit, but was rubbing the hand of his new foster mom before he was even out of the crate. He […]

Letting Go of Jennie Jane: Releasing a TNR Cat

After nearly two weeks in a temporary foster home, it was time for Jennie Jane to be released. She has recovered from her surgery very well. She’s spent all of that time resting, eating food she didn’t have to find herself, and observing the foster home. And she also made it clear that she was […]

Another Day, Another Trapped Feral Cat #PghCatLadies

She’s incredibly wily and trap savvy – constantly pulling food out the side and always avoiding the actual trap snap. So the folx at Homeless Cat Management Team hooked us up with Karen Sable who is a guru among drop trap […]

We’ve dubbed her Jennie Jane and it appears she is pregnant again. We’ve been trying to trap her for months with little […]

Even. More. Kittens.

When we last left this story, we had captured one kitten from a litter of five that are attached to a mama cat we’ve been feeding. We named him Sun Volt (SV) because he’s a gorgeous ginger orange tabby and he’s a fierce little man. He took up residence in our bathroom where our dog’s […]
